Team AOSPA remains a significant stakeholder in the custom ROM world. While Paranoid Android may not have the enormous community that LineageOS has behind it, it still has a committed developer team and enthusiastic, loyal fans who have been awaiting a release for quite some time now. And today is the day; an early port of Android 8.0 Oreo-based Paranoid Android for the OnePlus 3 and the OnePlus 3T has been released by Team AOSPA.
While they may not be first to the party (an unofficial LineageOS build based on Oreo was ready back in September), they've managed to get there, and better late than never. A lot of the most popular AOSPA features have yet to be implemented, but this build is largely focused on ensuring full hardware compatibility before the addition of features atop the ROM.
As of right now the AOSPA camera application is about the only AOSPA addition you can expect to find aboard this ROM; aside from that the majority of components and sensors such as RIL, WiFi, Bluetooth, NFC, the camera, speakers, the fingerprint scanner and GPS are all fully functional. However, not all is sunshine and rainbows; the notification slider, touch gestures, and SELinux (which is set to permissive in this build) are not currently functioning correctly. And with the exception of the kernel sources, which will be available "soon," the team is keeping the device tree private until the ROM reaches a stable state.
If you're interested in seeing how this first Paranoid Android build is working at the moment, you can download it from the OnePlus forums.
What do you guys think? Will you try this ROM on your OnePlus 3 or 3T? Will you install it when it officially launches with the full feature set? Let us know in the comments or post over in the forums with your thoughts.
